Fox News To Shut Down During Obama’s Inauguration
Is this unpatriotic or just straight up rude?
Fox News Channel announced Saturday it would shut down for “routine maintenance” Monday morning at 11:30 E.T. Fox News president Roger Ailes said the network wanted to pick a time when nothing was happening that their viewers wanted to see. President Barack Obama's Inauguration is scheduled to take place during the maintenance. The only other time Fox had considered shutting down was exactly four years earlier on January 20, 2009. “It turned out that no Fox viewers wanted to watch TV that day. And I mean none,” Ailes said. “Regular viewers of Fox probably won’t notice anything unusual.
After the maintenance is completed, Fox will return to the air Tuesday morning with its regular broadcast schedule. (The NewYorker)
